London: Hodder and Stoughton Limited, no date [1912]. [Children's illustrated] REVISED 'BEST' EDITION. Quarto (29 x 22cm), pp.[8]; 126 [2]. With 50 chromolithographic plates by Rackham, as well as further occasional wood engravings.

A fine copy, inside and out.

1912-1918., 1912. Octavo cash-book. Pre-printed in columns and paginated 1-258, with inscribed entries up to p. 63, from 202-4, and from 251-255, the remainder blank.

The contents include an Index of all the subscribers and the amounts they gave, and shows a steady increase in membership over the period, presumably reflecting public opinion that women deserved representation. Most members paid 1 or 2 shillings, while a handful of wealthier contributors gave up to 5. Membership was mainly but not exclusively female, and included a number of married couples. Also recorded are expenses for items such as Banners, and money donated to good causes, which included war relief efforts, the London School of Medicine for Women and School for Mothers. The Free Church League for Woman's Suffrage was founded in 1910 in response to the formation of the Anglican organisation the Church League for Women's Suffrage in 1909; the FCLWS was a smaller organis … [Click Below for Full Description]

A corner stone in any collection of books on the Antarctic. - Norwegian Capt ain Roald Amundsen's modest account of his extraordinary South Pole exploit is a classic in exploration literature. (Rosove 9.a.1.). - Amundsen dreamed of performing in the Antarctic the feat which Peary had accomplished in the Arctic, namely the conquest of the Pole. Having heard that the British explorer Robert Falcon Scott was preparing to do the same thing, with considerable material resources, his one desire was to forestall him. On 9 August, 1910, he sailed from Akersfus (Norway), aboard the Fram. - No Polar Expedition Was Ever Better Prepared. They took a whole house, 25ft by 11ft, 15 tents, each of which could accommodate 16 men, 10 sledges, dogs from Greenland, and provisions in abundance.

Landschaftsmaler und Graphiker. 1902-1906 Schüler von Eugen Bracht (1842-1921) in Dresden. Studienaufenthalte in Paris und Schottland (1907/08). „Siegfried Berndt begann um 1903, sich mit dem Farbholzschnitt zu beschäftigen. Bei ihm sind die japanischen Analogien besonders offensichtlich. Zahlreich sind die inhaltlichen Übereinstimmungen, häufig deckungsgleich die Sujets. Er stellt Boote, Brücken, Wasser du Bäume dar und greift gestalterische Aspekte der Japaner auf. Bei kaum einem anderen Künstler können die fernöstlichen Anregungen wie ungewöhnliche Bildausschnitte, angeschnittene Objekte, flächenhafte Zweidimensionalität, weitgehende Schattenlosigkeit, gleichmäßige Präsenz der Linien und konturierte Farbflächen so deutlich beobachtet werden wie bei Berndt. Ausgezeichnete Beispiele dafür sind „Windstille" von 1906, zwei um 1908 entstandene Darstellungen der Seine-Brücke bei St. Cloud sowie zwei „Landungsstege" von 1911, die direkt auf Hiroshige zurückgeführt werden können."

Foreword by Peary and an introduction by Booker T. Washington. In fine condition. Rare in this condition. Matthew Alexander Henson was the first African-American Arctic explorer, an associate of Robert Peary on seven voyages over a period of nearly 23 years.

His only descendants are through his children with an Inuit woman, Akatingwah. [Attributes: First Edition]

Adler, Alfred, Arzt und Psychotherapeut, Begründer der Individualpsychologie (1870-1937).
Wissenschaftlicher Brief an einen Kollegen: "Sehr geehrter Herr Kollega! Es war mir schon längst ein Bedürfnis, Ihnen meine Beobachtungen bezüglich des jungen Radvanyi mitzuteilen. Leider kam ich erst heute in den Besitz Ihrer Adresse. R. kam zu mir mit schweren Erscheinungen eines Depressionszustandes, der mit Zwangsgrübeln und Suicidgedanken, sowie mit hypochondrischen Stimmungen überladen war. Dieser Zustand verdeckte einen Komplex von Erscheinunhen, die gelegentlich als forcirte Größenideen hypomanischer Art zu erkennen waren. Somit handelte es sich um den Beginn einer Cyklothymie, deren unbeeinflusste Ausbreitung von vornherein kaum zu ermessen war. Deshalb hielt ich meine Behandlung für dringend geboten. Nach dem Eindruck, den R. bei seinem Abschied hervorrief, und nach späteren Mitteilungen von Frau Dr. Stricker, glaube ich, dass sein Leiden behoben, zumindestens sein Fortschreiten aufzuhalten ist. Nichtsdestoweniger schlage ich vor, die Behandlung von Zeit zu Zeit fortsetzen zu können. Leider fand ich bei einer körperlichen Untersuchung des Patienten, zu der ich mich im Laufe der Behandlung gezwungen sah, dass R. an einer chronischen Siphilis mit Herzhypertrophie leidet. Ich stellte ihm diesen Zustand als einen äußerst geringfügigen Befund dar, verwies ihn im Übrigen an Sie und gab ihm nur die notwendigen vorläufigen Verhaltensmaßregeln. Ich hielt mich von der Gutartigkeit des Leidens überzeugt, hätte aber gerne eine Auskunft über Wassermann[-Test] von Ihnen erhalten.

LAUE, Max von, Walter FRIEDRICH & Paul KNIPPING.
Münich: F. Straub for the Verlag der Königlich Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1912. First edition. First edition, very rare offprint issue, of Laue's Nobel Prize-winning report of "one of the most beautiful discoveries in physics" (Einstein). X-rays had been in wide use since their discovery in 1895 but their exact nature as electromagnetic waves of short wavelength was first elucidated by Laue and his collaborators in the present papers. Laue (1879-1960) had moved in 1909 from Berlin (where he was Planck's assistant) to Ludwig Maximillians University in Münich, where he was Arnold Sommerfeld's Privatdozent. In the spring of 1912 he was asked by Sommerfeld's doctoral student Paul Ewald a question about the arrangement of atoms in a crystal. In attempting to answer this question "Laue had the crucial idea of sending X-rays through crystals. At this time scientists were very far from having proven the supposition that the radiation that Röntgen had discovered in 1895 actually consisted of very short electromagnetic waves. Similarly, the physical composition of crystals was in dispute, although it was frequently stated that a regular structure of atoms was the characteristic property of crystals. Laue argued that if these suppositions were correct, then the behavior of X-radiation upon penetrating a crystal should be approximately the same as that of light upon striking a diffraction grating" (DSB), an instrument used for measuring the wavelength of light, inapplicable to X-rays because their wavelength is too short. Sommerfeld was initially skeptical but Laue persis … [Click Below for Full Description]

Foreword by Peary and an introduction by Booker T. Washington. In fine condition. Rare in this condition.

Marc Aurel Stein was born in 1862 to Jewish parents in Hungary and later became a British citizen. He spoke Hungarian and German in the home and learned French, English, Greek, and Latin at Catholic and Lutheran schools in Budapest. His advanced studies in ancient Persian and Sanskrit in Germany and Austria earned him a PhD from the University of Tubingen in 1883. The following year he went to England to continue his studies of Asian languages and began to study archaeology. In 1887 he went to India to work in educational administration. His career as an explorer on the ancient Silk Road of Central Asian began with a major expedition during the years 1900-01. The second, and most important of his explorations, which is the subject of "Ruins of Desert Cathay" was undertaken in 1906-08. It was in 1907 in Chinese Turkestan that he discovered a trove of thousands of manuscripts walled up in a room in the "Cave of a Thousand Buddhas," including a block printed roll of the Buddhist text "The Diamond Sutra" dating to 868 CE, now considered to be the oldest known printed book.
